Cooking With Kief
Kief had been accumulating in my grinder for some time. I don’t smoke it and I had no idea what to do with it.
I never considered cooking with kief until an IG friend suggested I try kief cookies.
That’s when I discovered, I’ve been missing out! Chocolate chip kief cookies are the easiest edible I’ve ever made!

Cooking With Kief Tips
- The amount of kief placed in each cookie determines the strength of the cookie.
- Kief is concentrated; it’s much stronger than cannabis flower.
- Orally ingesting cannabis produces stronger effects than smoking or vaporizing – use caution.
- Edibles can take an hour to begin working – wait at least an hour in between doses.
- Effects of edibles last longer than smoking. Learn more: How long does a weed high last?
How to Make Kief Cookies
Here’s how to make kief cookies, a potent edibles recipe.
Kief cookies are the easiest edible to make and they’re delicious. The weedy taste is hardly noticeable.
Cooking with kief is a lot easier than using ground cannabis bud.
1. Decarboxylate Kief
In order to be activated, kief and cannabis must be heated. Heating kief (or cannabis flower) causes the THCA to lose a molecule and become THC. THCA is believed to have therapeutic properties as well, but most consumers are seeking the effects of THC.
How to Decarboxylate Kief in an Oven
- Spread kief onto a baking sheet or onto a baking dish (I use a covered baking casserole dish)
- Bake at 230 degrees for 30 mins
Note: When you heat cannabis (including kief) in the oven, the smell will intensify. That means, your house will smell like marijuana when you make these kief cookies.
2. Prep Cookie Dough as Usual
You can make kief cookies with any type of cookie dough. You can use cookie dough from the refrigerator section of the grocery store or prepare your favorite recipe.
Below is my favorite whole-grain chocolate chip cookie dough recipe.
3. Make a Well in a Ball of Cookie Dough – Add 1/8 teaspoon of Kief
Note: The amount you add all depends on your individual tolerance and how strong your kief is.
